Exclusively located in the Ol Kinyei Conservancy, Cheetah Camp is one of the smaller and more intimate accommodations in the Masai Mara area. Comprising only six spacious tents, the camp is solar-powered, community-driven and offers you a wide range of safari and cultural experiences. The tents are well spaced under shady trees, affording you privacy when you are not out looking for topi, giraffe, lion, water buck and serval.
Wildlife viewing is the main focus and there are morning and afternoon game drives to look forward in the private conservancy. Located close to a permanent source of water, the area is an especially game-rich one and famous for its abundance of big cats, the most common of which is often cheetah, regularly seen with cubs. You also have the chance to go on full-day safaris in the nearby Masai Mara as well as guided bush walks and cultural excursions to Maasai villages. There is also the optional experience of a dawn hot-air balloon safari, the most dramatic way to greet the rising African sun.
The camp is open all year round with the Wildebeest Migration moving through the region between about July and November. Cheetah Camp welcomes guests over the age of five but parents should bear in mind this is an unfenced camp with no
dedicated to children.
